Kids and I just got back from seeing him. Still in major pain and medicated heavily so I think he knew we were there but probably won't remember. During a somewhat wakeful moment I told him you all were thinking of him and that I would read him the thread tomorrow. He smiled, then drifted back to lala land.
Has a "sitter" with him. Evidently, when he tries to fight the pain or turn to get comfortable he's ripping out his IV and leads without knowing.
MRI tomorrow to clarify gallstone and condition of pancreas. Will know more about length of stay and expected course after that.
Bless you for all your support. Can't tell you how much it means. Got about 4 hours of sleep this afternoon, so I'm heading up to bed to be fresh for tomorrow.
